The Saskatchewan Geoscience Calendar showcases the geoscience beauty of our province. It is aimed at the general public and professional geoscientists alike, to educate them about the natural beauty of our province and about the impact of geoscience on our lives and prosperity. Monthly photos feature various scenes from the 3.4 billion years of Earth history thus far recorded in the province from outcrop scale to landscape views spanning the Precambrian Shield in the north to the southern prairies. Four pages at the beginning of the calendar focus on the province's geological resources, history and landscape and also features our most recent award winners.

2016 Geological Calendar of Saskatchewan - 1st edition
The idea for the Calendar was born in 2015 and a committee of SGS members (see below) worked hard to create and design Saskatchewan's first Geological Wall Calendar for 2016. The purpose of the calendar, apart from the obvious, is to educate the general public about Saskatchewan geology and its impact on our lives and prosperity. Monthly photos feature various scenes from the 3.4 billion years of Earth history thus far recorded in the province from microscopic scale to landscape views spanning the Precambrian Shield in the north to the southern prairies.
In 2016 the Society printed 1000 calendars, most of which were sold, with some having been handed out free to schools across the Regina area.
The following sponsors are thanked for their generous contributions towards the 2022 Geoscience Wall Calendar: The Saskatchewan Mining Association has been a major contributor since the inception of the calendar. The remaining sponsors are, in alphabetical order: Caprice Resources Ltd., Dave Thomas, Deep Earth Energy Production, Fleet Energy, Hy-Tech Drilling, IsoEnergy Ltd., J.D. Mollard and Associates, Osprey Wings Ltd., North American Helium, Petroleum Technology Research Centre, PrintWest, RESPEC, Rio Tinto, SSR Mining Seabee; Robertson Trading Company, and Saskatchewan Research Council.
